Has there been a change in thinking about a redoubler's rebid advance?

Please select up to 3 choices.

New suit advances by redoubler remain a 1rnd force and the auction cannot stop below 2N or 3 minor
New suit advances by redoubler are a 1rnd force but redoubler can pass any bid by opener
Redoubler's subsequent cuebid is a GF
Redoubler's subsequent new suit can be passed
Redoubler's subsequent cuebid is nearly game forcing but if 3N is not in focus you can stop in 3 major or 4 minor
1 over the double can not be passed and responder should plan to make a forcing bid at their second opportunity
1 over the double can be passed but 'if I get by this being passed out' I will be well placed
